JEWISS MISSES BY 200 grams. AS QUINN LEADS THE WAY
Round 1 Larkhall Scotland.
For the first time, the LGM has come to Scotland and what a visit it was. A Titanic battle between Kiern Jewiss & Alex Quinn both driving superbly, but in the end it was Jewiss who took victory over the line, only to have it taken away due to his kart being 200 grams under weight. Fusion driver Alex Quinn lead the race for near all 15 laps absorbing the pressure from Jewiss, but was presented with the win in the end. Quinn who showed his class managed to pull a gap with Jewiss clear of the following pack. After a very strong mid race Oliver York closed the gap and receiving the fastest lap to Tom Wood, passing Wood on the last lap to take 2nd with Wood a very good 3rd. William Pettitt finished a strong 4th, with Jonny Edgar, Lewis Thompson & Dexter Patterson finishing 5th,6th & 7th respectively, all the drivers new to the LGM.
The currently man on form Teddy Wilson had a torrid day having to come through the ‘B’ final from his bad heats, finishing 12th overall. Top Privateer driver Tyler Chesterton raced home to 8th overall and claimed his prize. Both types of tyres were used as the track went from wet in the morning to dry in the afternoon and there were five different winners of each of the five heats. After the race, Round 1 winner Quinn said “ I enjoyed the race today and i know Kiern should be standing here and feel really sorry for him as we both had a great race together, this is my first LGM round and i have enjoyed it a lot”. With another northern track coming next, it will be interesting to see if Quinn can make it 2 out 2 !
